The central parsec of the Galactic Centre region is a mix of ionised and atomic gas and dust with temperatures ranging from a few 100 to 104 K. We report the results of continuum observations of Sgr A* in the 3 and 1 mm regime and present a high-resolution 3-millimeter map of the Galactic centre region and the mini-spiral associated with it from observations with the local mm-array, CARMA.
